Rafael Nadal to skip Wimbledon ahead of doubles partnership at Olympics with Carlos Alcaraz

1 Min Read

“It will be a very special tournament, my first Olympics just after winning my first Roland Garros. Fighting for a gold medal for my country, playing doubles with my idol, Rafael Nadal, are things that I will only believe after experiencing them.”

The five tennis events at the Olympics will take place between July 27 and August 4, with 64 players in the singles, 32 teams in the doubles and 16 pairs in the mixed doubles.

While Alcaraz will be competing in the Olympics for the first time, Nadal already has two gold medals to his name. He was singles champion in Beijing in 2008, and won doubles gold alongside Marc Lopez at the Rio Games in 2016.
